Default ebay rear control arms

Ebay parts go without question, some are good, but some are crap, but as a person like me who usually buys cheap, then having to buy again to do it right, i want to show everyone how these ebay parts fail.

I had bought rear upper control arms (rear alignment kit) off of ebay last august 13th of 2011.
As of last week (on march 6th 2012, about 7 months later) they failed on me, so I have replaced them with ingalls off of summit racing. the ingalls appears to be made 1000x better.

The old ones are on top, the ingalls is on the bottom.


The ingalls was $51 a piece. The ebay ones was $27.88 for two.
Here is some pictures of what happed to the ebay ones.

I also need to point out something else with these new ingalls, if anyone else were to buy them, I don't know the exact name of the part that mounts against the car, but they are thicker, and you may need to buy longer bolts.

I think it is unsafe to buy no-brand ebay suspension components, I prefered to use the washer trick until I save enough for a set of S2's

Ebay is great but you gotta confirm your buying the proper & exact part before making your decision. To share my experience, I bought a pair of red anodized rear control arms. They're BLACKWORKS. I think. But I'm sure that's the brand. Anyhow, I paid a believe a nice penny for both. It's been a while since then, bought they worked perfectly fine until now. No type of deterioration or anything. You get what you put in, that's your baby, pamper it. That's all I can say for cheap vs. expensive parts.
